Municipal – Zoning – Subdivision Plans – Alterations – Flexible Design OptionExperienceOne Homes, LLC v. Town of Morrisville After successfully seeking to have their property rezoned, plaintiffs made major alterations in their subdivision’s design: a switch from townhomes to detached single-family homes, increased density, rearrangement of lots, reduced greenspace, altered road placement, and the failure to include a required bridge. Despite switching from townhomes to detached single-family homes, plaintiffs left lot size at 2,500 square feet; the defendant-town’s minimum lot size for detached single-family homes was 6,000 square feet. Since these changes did not qualify as a “minor amendment,” the town properly required plaintiffs to apply for a flexible design option.
